well, I still have some leakage below when it rains, most likely from where the portlights
are bedded in their old gaskets. ugh. we're trying to figure that out.
I replaced all the engine gauges: temp, oil
, volts and hours. But the original shift and throttle need replaced, because the shifter is stiff...and they designed this with the shifter on the port side, while the linkage is on the starboard side of the A-4. My solution is that I'm having another shifter and throttle installed aft on the starboard side, more convenient to the helm
, and a straight run for the cable...along with a tach. Also, one other issue is that when I have the engine throttled down as low as it can get without stalling, I'm still going about 4.5 kts. - maybe the new setup will allow me to go dead slow.
